Nils Landgren's "Christmas With My Friends" ensemble is a faithful companion for the most wonderful time of the year. The fourth edition, like the previous ones, presents a diverse selection of international, Swedish, traditional, and modern Christmas songs, as well as atmospheric secular popular songs, in the familiar quiet and intimate atmosphere.

Nils Landgren
For the words versatility and curiosity, there is a synonym: Nils Landgren. Virtuosically, "Mr. Red Horn" navigates from perspective to perspective, partly because he thrives on constant change. Two souls reside in his chest: When the audience experiences him with his "Funk Unit," the Swede reveals his distinctive, relentlessly groovy side and becomes the jazz action hero. But there's also a very gentle, melancholic, highly sentimental Nils Landgren. This side of him emerges, for example, during the Advent season when the instrumentalist and singer celebrates "Christmas With My Friends," or in his ballad projects. On the trombone, he intones with unparalleled smoothness, and his uniquely textured, fragile voice touches the heart and soul with its sensitivity.
